What Star Wars & Silk Balance Have in Common

It seems everyone is talking about Star Wars leading up to the new movie… but we have our own Rey of light that fights the Dark Side… it’s called Silk Balance – and it’s the last balancing agent you’ll ever need.

Here’s how it works. Every time you use your hot tub, you leave behind food for bacteria. The bigger the buffet, the more bacteria are going to want to come to the party. Apparently, hot tubs are romantic for microorganisms because right away, they make baby bacteria, who then use your spa as a bacteria bassinet.

The end result is hot tub water that looks, smells and feels like Jabba the Hut trying to french kiss Princess Leia.

Silk Balance eliminates the stuff bacteria eats, keeping your water balanced and silky. No more itchiness, no more tight skin, no more foul or chemical smell.

Through the use of additives that act as passive biostat agents, Silk Balance eliminates bacteria’s ability to surround itself with a protective biofilm, which leaves them as helpless as the Death Star without its force field.

Silk Balance is not a sanitizer, but it saves you money and countless hours. We counted. Adding Silk Balance saves about 15 minutes a week, or 13 hours a year.

It’s super easy to use and not at all harmful to the environment. Your pets can drink water treated with it and you can use it to water your plants. Not only won’t they get sick, but they’ll probably thank you for their newfound silkiness.

Silk Balance is effective, easy and safe — unless you’re bacteria. Then, Silk Balance is a great big buzzkill that killed its own father with a lightsaber.
